Monday on the Homestead
Today is an exciting day! This will be Jacobs first day of school. He is eager to get going so is starting early. Plus he has a little trip coming up next month and wanted to get a jump on the school year so he would not fall behind. Last night we went over his school subjects, text books and
After Jacob is off and running with his school work I (with the help of my children) need to run through the house and get it picked up and cleaned up. Then it will be deciding how to use the next bunch of zucchini I picked yesterday. One thing I have done a lot of lately is sautéing it in butter and olive oil with onions and garlic.. yum! I want to get some zucchini bread made and maybe grate and freeze some for later on this winter.
The weather is supposed to be warming up over the next few days and I am very happy to hear this. I have tons of green tomatoes and they really need some heat and sun to ripen up. I am also ready to pull out my green bean plants as they are done now and do some weeding. We have had rain and unseasonably cool weather lately and my garden has burst forth with a fresh crop of weeds! LOL..
Today we also need to go into our local town and pick up Sierra’s art work that she entered in the fair. It was a black and white pencil drawing that one first place! She was thrilled! Her drawing skills are getting better and better as she gets older. This pic was very detailed. I will scan it and post it when we get it back. When her room is done she will be able to hang it on her wall.
Dinner tonight will be.. something yummy.. Usually it is weekend leftovers.. but there were none left over.. so I will come up with some clever..
Hope you all have a great Monday on your homesteads!
